Information shared between you and your therapist is strictly confidential. The staff at The Therapy Centre understands that you value your privacy and we seek to maintain strict standards of confidentiality with respect to client information. Client information is not released to anyone without your written permission, except as required by law in Ontario. Under the law, we are required to break confidentiality under four specific circumstances:
- In circumstances involving imminent risk of physical harm to oneself or another, your therapist would inform an appropriate health care professional or the police of a client’s intention to end his/her life or harm someone else.
- In cases of suspected child abuse or neglect, your therapist must immediately report their concerns to the Children’s Aid Society.
- In cases where your therapist discovers that a regulated health care professional (doctor, nurse, psychologist, etc) has abused a client, this must be reported to the practitioner’s own regulatory body.
- If a client’s file is subpoenaed by a court of law, the therapist would release the file.
While psychological services are not covered by O.H.I.P, most extended health insurance plans cover services provided by registered psychologists. At The Therapy Centre we offer two rates in order to provide options to our clients.
We have Master level therapists that have a lower rate and psychologists that have a higher rate. Dr. Maria Antoniou supervises all Master level therapists at the centre and as a result, all insurance plans that cover psychologists will also cover our Master level therapists.
Individuals may contact the centre directly to arrange an appointment for an assessment or treatment. No professional referral is required, although referrals from various professionals, such as family physicians, psychiatrists, mental health clinicians, lawyers, insurance companies, rehabilitation, etc are welcome.
To book an appointment or to enquire about services at our centre, you can contact us via telephone at (289) 291-0205 or by filling out the form on our contact page.
